6:20pm
set up, mid latitude, warm, moist storms coming in and 10 or 12-inch of rain over the course of four or five events. we have a series of storms lined up now coming from the gulf of alaska. by the time they add up one after another they would be lucky to get an inch of the rain in some of the cities around here over the course of five or six or seven days. overnight lows will be cold. the weather system that is leaving the area now is still spawning a few light showers in the area. so tonight at 10:00 or 11:00 i wouldn't be surprised by mission peak, southward, monterey, you're going to get a few scattered showers and then it starts to clear out. as we go into thursday, mostly sunny, partly sunny, temperatures on the mild side and then friday, look what shows up, yeah, yet another one from up there and watch what it does. it comes right in along the coast. this will be a tricky one. that right now looks like the friday event. friday morning's commute could have a little bit of wet on the
